"What the giddiness over the Democrat's victory in Virginia signifies"

A week ago, a religiously conservative candidate won the Virginia Governor's race. He was a self-described pro-life moderate for "common sense restrictions on abortion." He said he was personally opposed to the death penalty, but he promised his oposition would not stop him from signing death warrants if given the power. And he was pro corporate globalization: keeping Virginia moving forward. But instead of being outraged, Democrats are excited that he won because they nominated and funded him.
